MOSCOW, November 11, 17:19 /ITAR-TASS/. High-ranking officials from Russia and Georgia will hold negotiations in the Czech city of Prague on November 21.
“During a telephone conversation on November 9 between Russian State Secretary and Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin and special envoy of the Georgian prime minister Zurab Abashidze several aspects of Russian-Georgian relations were discussed,” the Russian Foreign Ministry stated. “The negotiators agreed on a next meeting in Prague on November 21,” the ministry reported.
On October 28 (after presidential elections in Georgia) Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated, Russia “hopes that Georgia will pursue a friendly, good neighbourly policy towards Russia, taking into account modern realities in this quite difficult region.”
“This also concerns the question of restoring diplomatic relations. We did not sever these relations,” Lavrov said then. “We will expect Georgia’s statements about which policy the country intends to pursue in the relations with Russia,” the Russian foreign minister said.
